Book Review ~ Samara’s Peril by Jaye L. Knight (Ilyon Chronicles, #3)

About the Book

Samara's PerilWhen news arrives that Emperor Daican has been in contact with his chief war strategist, it signals potential doom for the country of Samara. Determined to intervene, the resistance in Landale, headed by Lady Anne, embark on a covert mission in hopes of unearthing further information. However, a shocking discovery leads to complications no one could have foreseen.

War is inevitable, and they must face two desperate battles—one on the walls of Samara’s great stronghold, and the other on the battlefield of Jace’s heart, where victory might only be achievable through great sacrifice.






4 Stars


The third book in the Ilyon Chronicles Series, it brings to light the truth behind the mysterious birth of Jace, the half ryrik, and sets the story in a time that mimics Christ’s stay and mission on earth. It also brings to a crux the relationship between Jace and Kyrin, which turned out to be everything a romance reader could hope for!

As always with this series, there are bitter-sweet scenes that highlight significant moments in the lives of the characters that we’ve come to love. I, personally, have come to accept that this story isn’t precisely about happy endings, but about characters who triumph in the face of sorrow, rather than be destroyed by seeming defeat. The plot is a good mix of every element that makes a passionate and resonating story aimed at surpassing the need to simply entertain, but to pass on a message of hope and courage at a time when this generation of God’s children needs it.

If you’re in the market for a story/saga that tells of characters who conquer with love, win in faith, and overcome all the odds with refreshing style and grace, look no further than the books of Ilyon Chronicles!
